Rookie mistake (and I thought I knew something about baking)
So I was attempting to bake bread but the dough wasn't rising and wasn't rising. Finally I realized my mistake - I used active dry yeast but treating it like instant yeast. Would the following measures be appropriate: 1. Activate a bit of yeast. 2. Roll out the dough and spread the activated yeast all over it. 3. mix it all together. 4. Knead and see if it will rise as normal?
The dough is currently in the refrigerator. I like the Lesson 3 recipe, so that was the one I was making - technically I started it yesterday.
Any and all advice is welcomed with utmost gratitude. I loathe waste so I'd like to salvage this dough in some form or another.
